El Willy "Fun F&B Group" is the result of several years of a Chef's hard work in Asia. Since his arrival to Shanghai in 2007, Willy has created fun F&B projects that now are presented under the group umbrella. Our first concept, "el Willy, Happy Spanish Restaurant" -today our flagship venue- was followed by "el Cóctel" -a Japanese cocktail bar with a funky twist-, "FoFo by el Willy" -a contemporary Spanish restaurant in Central Hong Kong-, "Bikini, Snackies and Hot Dogs" -a tiny crazy sandwich bar-, and "Elefante, Happy Restaurant and Bar" -Mediterranean. On the horizon, new concepts under developement in China and beyond. Welcome to el Willy Fun F&B Group!
